In Ein Karem 27-28 of January 2012 we were happy to welcome members of a group peacebuilding called “World Vision”.
World Vision began working in the Holy Land in 1975. World Vision initially assisted Palestinian groups supporting education & rehabilitation projects to empower communities for independence from relief & structural aid while building a better understanding of sustainable development. In 1999, World Vision began working in Area Development Programmes – a holistic long-term (10-15 years) programme in a cluster of villages driven by the needs of that specific community. World Vision also works with some government grants and relief projects. World Vision partners with local organizations and coordinates with communities to tackle issues that they themselves have helped to identify. World Vision is currently working in Jerusalem, West Bank, & Gaza with 157,298 direct beneficiaries
